In a study that did use objective weather measurements in the context of a physical activity intervention, Chan et al 16

associated with objective measurement of physical activity (using accelerometers) among individuals with a lower-limb amputation who are using a prosthesis. We hypothesized that self-report measures assessing functional mobility, balance confidence, and prosthetic use would each independently help to explain

Although both terms are closely related, they should not be treated as synonyms. 7 PA is defined as any body movement performed by muscle action that increases energy expenditure. 8 PA can be quantified by intensity, duration, or frequency, using subjective or objective measurements. Moreover, PA volume
